Fish oil

For those who use fish oil I’ve heard not all brands are as good as others. What would be considered a good brand? And would taking fish oil each day be fattening?

Hi Jane,

I don’t know about the relative values of different brands, but here’s a site with a nutritional summary: http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts-C00001-01c20A8.html. You can choose the quantity to look at, so watch out for the 1-cup size (it’s 1968 calories!!). I don’t know if the 4 gram size corresponds to a capsule or two, but that sounds about right–there are 28 grams in an ounce. 4 grams of fish oil have 41 calories, so that’s not too bad.

Believe it or not, I take Grape Seed Oil…
